Barton Highway duplication design on display

28 November 2011

The road boundaries and concept plans for the future duplication of the Barton Highway will go on display this month.

"This is an opportunity for the communities of Yass, Murrumbateman and Hall to view the finalised plans after the recent community consultation process,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.

“Since the proposed road boundaries and concept design were displayed for comment in May 2010, Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has been using the extensive feedback to make further refinements.

“The consultation process and subsequent changes are available in the ‘Preferred Road Boundaries Corridor Report’ which provides information on the environmental and road constraints of the project, the changes made to the concept design and the decision making process.

“It also includes a submissions report which summarises the issues raised and provides responses to those issues.

“The road boundaries have been provided to Yass Valley Council for inclusion in council’s Local Environment Plan.

“This will help with future development on the Barton Highway and will ensure the road boundaries are protected,” the spokesperson said.

The community is invited to view the concept plans at an information session on Monday 12 December at Murrumbateman Country Inn, Barton Highway, Murrumbateman.

Project team members will be in available to discuss the project.

The designs are also on display at:

  • Murrumbateman Library, The Old School House, Barton Highway, Murrumbateman
  • Yass Valley Council, 209 Comur Street, Yass
